Last summer, during the lead up to Yeezy Season 1 and the album that was then known as Swish, Kanye West stopped by HOT 97 and said that he wanted Steph Curry to wear Yeezys instead of Under Armour sneakers. Now, months later, we’re finally finding out what the NBA MVP thinks about Kanye’s comments.
In a new interview with Sole Collector, Curry said he’ll wear Yeezys under one condition. “If [Kanye] wants to come to team UA, then I’ll make that move. I’ll be here waiting for him,” Curry said, adding that he’s not getting his hopes up. “There’s no way that’s going to happen.”
Yeezys or no Yeezys, it’s safe to say that Curry and Under Armour don’t need any help moving product right now. In response toLeBron’s “Who is that?” shade from last December, Curry had this to say: “It just shows the progress we’re making and the momentum that we’re picking up in the sneaker world. We’re a major player in the basketball business when it comes to footwear. People have to be taking notice.”
Taking notice might be an understatement, as Curry’s sneakers helped Under Armour amass $1.17 billion in sales last quarter with even bigger numbers expected in 2016.
